So, keeping with my tradition of being the last person on the planet to play good games, I picked up Final Fantasy Anthology for $10. Of couse, FFVI is the good game of the two on that two-game set.

However, I'm playing FFV first, since this is just something to do while pedalling on an exercise bike. Perfect for that.

Why doesn't Captain Faris have a fan following? I guess the rest of the game is so short on characterization and plot that it's mostly for game mechanics fans, but this character needs more love.

I think Faris was reborn as Lightning Farron. A pity the fake pirate accent disappeared.

Also, Galuf is clearly Captain Basch after getting bashed on the head with a rock.

I'm only partway through the game -- I need to head off to Crescent Island to collect my next plot coupon -- but it's a fun diversion.

I'll play VI when I'm finished so I can finally enjoy the game which so many of my Old School Gamer friends seem to recommend.

Faris is great.

I didn't ever finish that game, but Faris is definitely the standout character. I even have art:

Also, I have never thought of exercise bike + video games. Good fricking idea!

<3 FFVI <3

Even though it is no longer my fave, it was the one that got me sucked into the FF series. Such nostalgic warm fuzzes I have for it.

Gaming + exercise bike is such an excellent idea! I'm going to try it too.

FFV is the only game from 3-13 that I own but have never felt compelled to play. I guess I should sweep off the dust from it and from my exercise bike.

Have you seen the full official Squeenix art with red mage Fran? ( It was the cover of the FFXII International Zodiac Job System Ultimania book. I found Black Mage Penelo and White Mage Ashe equally amusing although as for what Vaan and Basch (and Balthier) are attempting to do off in the distance... XD

FFX with a DDR pad!!!! That's awesome. It wants to be a youtube video. :)

I recently set up my exercise bike but I haven't created a daily habitual routine out of it. I queued up classic trek on my Netflix instra-stream purely for that reason but now I'm thinking that classic FF games are the way to go on days I'm not killing myself doing intervals.

I spent HOURS making Miis that look like various final fantasy characters so when I play with my Wii Fit, random FF Miis join in.

Faris is delightfully fun. I like V a lot, though I've no drive to fic for it.

I am so excited for you to play VI.

Faris is, indeed, awesome! Best thing about that game, no question.

I have still not finished FFVI despite multiple attempts. But I need to.

The author deadline was back in July anyway. But hold that thought for next year? ;)

It's so easy to slip into that, given how highly our society prioritizes romantic dyads. But I am a big fan of the "Yes, both" solution to the love triangle. (See: "Reconcilable Differences" and, eventually, one of the Dragon Age stories I'm working on...)
